Gewurztraminer 2008 Sélection de Grains Nobles
Tasting notes : Of a golden appearance, the nose of this wine is powerful and complex mixing aromas of candied fruit (particularly quince), acacia honey and spices. In the mouth, this nectar again evokes again the tastes of candied fruit, honey and spice already encountered in its bouquet.
Suggested food pairings : Equally suited as a wine to be drunk following a meal as an aperitif, it would accompany a citrus fruit-based desert very well.

Age of the vines: 25 years
Method of harvest: Grapes picked and sorted by hand
